About this Event

On December 8th at 2pm ET, the Law Library of Congress will host a webinar to demonstrate how to use our new Foreign Legal Gazettes Database to explore the Law Library's vast collection of foreign legal gazettes. The Law Library has been collecting foreign legal gazettes since the mid-19th century. We are one of the last libraries to systematically acquire these titles from as many jurisdictions as possible. Presently, we collect from about 175 national jurisdictions and approximately 100 subnational jurisdictions.

Our new database allows patrons to search our gazettes by jurisdiction (either via the facets or by clicking on a map), title, content and format. A mobile version has added functionality through sorting capabilities in the columns of the table.

This webinar will be presented by Chief of the Law Library Collection Services Division Kurt Carroll, Supervisor for the Law Library Collection Services Division Betty Lupinacci, Lead Technician for Law Library Legal Processing Workflow Resolution Ken Sigmund, and Law Library Technician Elina Lee.
